    I'm having the same problem with the SP 40' Hi-Cube, the closest pictures I've found have been of the SSW cars.

    (Edit - this is in response to the pic of the BLE 50' box, I forgot to include the quotes...d'oh!)

    The Railgoat site was the first place that I looked, it had 3 pics of the SSW cars and zero of the SP cars. Worst case scenario, the pictures of the SSW cars should be close enough to work with.

    Um, people, this is a weathering contest with a timeframe. Three weeks to do the weathering, not a model weathered three years ago.

    This is a MT 40' double sheathed boxcar. Plan is to bash, repaint, decal and weather.

    Ok here is my entry. It is a Microtrains 40 ft Double Door Box Car. I started off with a dull coat spray then softened up the white markings on the car with some alcohol. Next was a few acrylic washes of dark to light colors. I them moved on to using some weathering powders and finished with a final humbrol dull coat.

    Thanks but my photo skills leave a lot to be desired. Some of my photos are horrendous. I need to get a little tripod and some better lighting. Working from my dining room table with CFL bulbs stinks! I can't wait to get my extra bedroom cleaned out so I can set up a work station. Anyone want some old bunkbeds!

    Nice progression series. Exactly what was hoped to be seen.
